in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call

want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> mitt romney's getting ready to climb back aboard his campaign bus and hit the road with a retooled strategy. between now and next month, presidential debates, he'll be making more frequent public appearances, highlighting his proposals to try to revive the u.s. economy. however, many republica are grumbling that romney's campaign itself is in dire need of a revival, especially after a secretly recorded complaints that the 47% of voters who support the president are dependent on the government. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itselves victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. i've demonstrated my capacity to help the 100%. >> after listening to a week's worth of criticism of her husband, especially from other republicans, romney's wife, ann, has had enough. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. it
for the united states and the things that he's done for humanity, what a credible voice tonight. what a credible voice. as much as he has been through, as much as he was targeted, he can speak from experience and say i never hated those guys. i wanted to get something done, and he did. i thought he spoke very well to the economy tonight too. he made the case about the philosophy of success, about, you know, wealthy people doing a little bit more because they can. i mean, i thought he had a great -- >> i think before you lead the hate part, because he talked about people proud of being -- their kids being born in america, which referred to this is a deeper and different kind of hate. they hated hillary clinton for what she wanted to do. they hated him for what they wanted to do. they hate president obama because of what he wants to do and because of what he is. that's what he was eluding to. which was a different hate than bill clinton. they never asked bill clinton for his birth certificate. so he understands the levels of hate here. as much as they fought hillary and him, they never asked him f
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
